At the end of this year we will see our third child 'graduate' from GES. As in any school some teachers have been better than others. Fortunately for incoming students there have been some retirement parties in the past few years. New teachers have brought new blood and new enthusiasm to the school. The principal is now 10 years old (can it be?) and has his feet firmly on the ground. GES has a very good program for all ranges of abilities. Extra help is available where needed and the special needs teachers are amazing! Parent involvement ranges from daily interactions to only at special events. But that is the way of any community. I feel that all three of our children each very different in their learning styles has come away with a solid base for entering middle school at John Long.

GES has been a wonderful place for my 7 Yr old. He started there in their full day Kindergarten program - and is not completing Grade 1. He just loves it. My wife and I couldn't be happier. The teachers are caring and play an active part in moulding the child when at school.
